of super storm sandy. let's head down to the weather have to talk to gary mcgrady and sue palka. we've been talking about this all evening tonight about areas around our region that typically flood with a little rain, but with everything we've had today we're still not seeing flooding up in annapolis, over in old duncan ya. what's going on? >> -- old town alexandria. what's going on? >> it has a lot to do with the wind today. most of what we've seen today has been strong northwest winds and that has been pushing water away from annapolis. we talked about the bloomingdale neighborhood in d.c. flooding many times this summer. that was from thunderstorms with torrential rain that really didn't move. they would dump a big load right on top of them. the rain today has been significant, but you haven't seen one spot getting all of it. so the river flooding and bay flooding has not been a problem because of the wind direction so far. tomorrow the winds will come out of south and maybe we see some of the water rising a bit in places like annapolis and alexandria depending how strong tho
